Arturo Vidal did not call Cristiano Ronaldo a "smart ass", with a translation error leading to incorrect headlines this week, Chile's press secretary says. Neither had won a major trophy until 2015 - but Chile now has two Copa Americas, while Portugal became European champion a year ago.

It remains a record across the continent to this day.

Fans of Cristiano Ronaldo's side will now be able to follow the team through training, friendlies and major tournaments, including this summer's Confederations Cup.

Despite their current winning streak, Portugal will play Chile without Raphael Guerreiro, who suffered a broken leg during the match against Russian Federation.

They go into the match-up having netted seven times in three games - drawing 2-2 with Mexico, before beating Russian Federation 1-0 and thrashing the All Whites 4-0.

"He played an unbelievable season in Spain and I think he is playing here with the same strength".

After coming off of their recent tie against Mexico, Portugal is set to play the Copa America Champions Chile in the FIFA Confederations Cup semifinals on Wednesday 7pm BST Kazan.

"Chile are favorites. They've players of great quality playing in big clubs worldwide, but our goal is to play the final".

Manchester City new boy Silva, 22, went down clutching his right foot after scoring in Saturday's win over New Zealand.

It is a bit surprising to see Vidal making such an offensive comment on Ronaldo and he now has to hope that Chile does not face the wrath of the superstar footballer on the pitch tomorrow. Both are top 5-ranked teams and New Zealand will stay around No. 95 after three defeats here. "We're talking about one of the best goalkeepers in the world, with an extraordinary career, and we're very happy that he's back with us".

Chile are not an easy team to analyse.

"And I'm sure it's going to be difficult.for Portugal as well". "We'll look to play as we have before to stop him". "The most important thing for me and my team is to win".

"I've said before that it doesn't really matter to me".

Vidal, meanwhile, won the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich last term, and produced some excellent displays as he registered a pass accuracy of 88% while making an average of three defensive actions per game.
